CD Reviews

The best of the master
D. Wolff | Alameda, CA USA | 05/26/2000
(5 out of 5 stars)

"At an early age I became addicted to Greek music, particularly Stavros Xarhakos. I avoided Theodoroakis because he seemed too 'commercial.' However, when I heard this album recently I was shocked. This guy is truly a master, with a wide range of style, which might be the cause of my earlier confusion. This is a magnificent cd, particularly the third cut, April, which is pure ecstacy; Beethoven at his best (Ode to Joy) is only second place to this kind of music, which is as much felt in the nervous system as heard. My only complaint about this collection is that it is entirely instrumental, no voice."
Music for the soul
D. Wolff | 12/21/1999
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Listening to the instrumental version of some of Thedorakis' songs is so engrossing, that heavy traffic while driving to work in the morning is not upsetting. It gives me the opportunity to listen to this wonderful music longer. The only complaint pertains to a technical glitz where track no.7 repeats itself on track no 10. Track no. 10, (To tragoudi tis xenitias), does not appear on the CD."
Theodorakis and his muse !
Hiram Gomez Pardo | Valencia, Venezuela | 12/29/2004
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Theodorakis is a sublime poet and besides an outstanding musician . His melodies are filled with the Mediterranean spirit ; the radiant charm , elegance , and joy of living is present in every piece of this unvaluable album .
Somehow you or anyone of us the descendents of the Western Civilization feel these melodies with special rapport because express the greatness and the energy of a land surrounded of glory .
And this special year in which the Olimpic Games took place and the Euro Copa was deservedly for them , you have not any excuse to acquire this CD as well for your personal collection or as a gift for a beloved friend ."
